The unnamed suspect is being questioned at a police station in Dorset, Scotland Yard said.

He is being investigated as part of an inquiry named Operation Brancaster which was sparked by MP Tom Watson.
In 2012 he used Prime Minister’s Questions to claim that a file of evidence used to convict a man called Peter Righton of importing child pornography in 1992 contained “clear intelligence” of a sex abuse gang.
He also claimed that a member of the group had bragged about links with a senior aide to a former Prime Minister.
Mr Watson wrote to Scotland Yard about the case, and the force later launched a number of separate criminal investigations after assessing the information.
